The Glass is Half Full | Daily Reminders

Sh. Abdullah Oduro describes how the Prophet ﷺ loved expressing optimism by saying a good word or behaving in an optimistic manner. We should stop focusing on the negative, but rather take from the Prophet’s example and make the best of the situation we are put in. Have hope in the future that Allah has decreed and be positive in the best of our ability.
